2 baking questions

Hello, I mail-ordered a silicone "pan" for financiers, and the rectangular openings are just a little bigger than dominoes--are financiers usually that small?

Qestion #2-- I'd like to try baking canneles in old aluminum jello molds. They are little individual dome shaped molds with scalloped sides. Any reason that wouldn't work?
I have done canneles successfully in plain muffin tins. Thank you!

  1. The financiers I've had have always been about 3/4" x 3", so yes, that's probably about the size of a domino.

    Never made canneles, so can't answer that question.

    1. re: Katie Nell

      I agree with katie on the appropriate size of a financier. Similarly, I've never made canneles, but if you had success with plain muffin tins, I would think aluminum jello molds would work too.
